Default Seldon Crisis - My new Project

Hi Everyone,

It's an exciting and nervy time as my new Company's video game kickstarter campaign is now live - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...x-mmo-universe

Seldon Crisis is an open world sci-fi massively multi-player online game (MMO) based on an original story written by Riccardo Simone (Chapter 1 is available to read now on the website here), a brilliant young Italian writer of science fiction, huge fan of the "Foundation Series" by Isaac Asimov. Created for fans of immersive player-driven games and set in the expanses of deep space..




As a sandbox MMO that allows you to freely travel the galaxy without stargates dictating your movement. You will start your journey with a small fighter craft and some money, starting to work your way towards bigger ships, wealth and influence over other players. It is completely up to you how you will achieve this: Through diplomacy, intelligence, military strength or economical power. Have an impact on thousands of other players in a seamless single shard universe. Write your own story, forge a great empire or cause the next Seldon Crisis.



If you like what you see and read please spread the word, our kickstarter goal is achievable but very ambitious so all support is appreciated.

Chris

We are definitely going for a similar slot in the genre and there will be elements that make eve players feel at home, but we intend to have alot of elements that are designed to position Seldon Crisis to the top of its niche, movement and combat will be alot more tactical and player skill based than the likes of eve for example (WASD control of ships, weapon arcs etc).

I think this is based on Asimov's Foundation and Empire series, those images are amazing mate....

Please post more inside information when you get the chance.

Best of luck with it Chris, I really hope this takes off. The absence of the "warp gates" from Eve, would make it a long time to get around different sectors, unless you have factored in some form or proper light speed / hyper drive element ? Please post more on this as I have some experience with these types of game and and am really interested. Very cool mate !
